Re: Time and Date When Listing Program?

Just another feature that could have been included had SM emulated the HP 82242A IR Printer Module instead of the HP 82143A Thermal Printer. Sigh. :(

Re: DM41X V2.1

The header is not considered a 'line' of the stated view. The '1st' line of a view is always the line just below the header. This should be consistent throughout the manual, but please feel free to note inconsistencies if you see any. Nope, it IS the third line, not including the header. You even s...

Re: DM41X V2.1

Another minor error in the User Manual. In Section 6.2.4. Save RAW Program, the current program is shown on line 3 of SI mode, not line 2 as stated in the Manual.

File deletion on the FAT disk

AFAIK, the only way to delete a file on the FAT disk is to connect it to a computer and use its file manager to delete a file. Over time a lot of junk and clutter is accumulated on the FAT disk such as unneeded RAW, State, and Backup files, and it would be nice if this housekeeping could be accompli...

Re: Fascinating calculators!

Congratulations on your discovery of the magic world of RPN. The HP-35S is a good choice to get you educated on RPN without spending too much money. As @grsbanks said, it is not one of the best examples of HP RPN calculators, but it is certainly adequate to get you going. I own one, and frankly, use...

Re: DM42 works with USB but not battery

I was always a fan of duracell but I have to change that opinion. Had a few leaks recently, one in the tv remote and one in a wireless keyboard. These were the devices that didn't have the batteries replaced with eneloops yet. Checking some batteries it shows duracell made in Belgium and duracell m...
